Power Up Business Course: Create Your Business, Financial, and Marketing Plan
Prospera and the Montana Women's Business Center are excited to announce the launch of Power Up to better meet the demand for start-up assistance in our region and reduce wait times for one-on-one counseling appointments. This course has specifically been designed for individuals who are brand new to business, wanting to start a business, and new business owners or individuals looking to start a second business.

Classes meet for three hours per day, one day per week over the course of three weeks. Registration is $175 for Prospera Members, $200 Non-Members. Power Up will be offered regularly throughout the year at different times of day. Class size is limited to 10 participants. Contact us for more details at (406) 587-3113.

*Individuals looking into starting a brand new business or business owners who have been "in business" less than six months must complete this course prior to scheduling a one-on-one counseling appointment. However, this requirement does not apply to those seeking assistance at the MWBC sub-center in Hamilton. 

Power Up is sponsored by Prospera Business Network, Montana Women's Business Center, Montana Manufacturing Extension Center, and the Bozeman Small Business Development Center.
